STRAY KIDS experience cold past love in dark music video for Winter Falls; welcome festive season with ‘Christmas EveL’

Bollywood News

South Korean group STRAY KIDS have released the music video of the second title track ‘Winter Falls’ from their latest single album’ Christmas EveL’. The music video of ‘Winter Falls’ was dropped on November 30 at 6pm KST.

Contrast to the first title track mv ‘Christmas EveL’ which has already been released on November 29, ‘Winter Falls’ takes a complete 360 turn from the previous one. Christmas EveL showed the members as Santa Claus's helpers, whereas in ‘Winter Falls’, STRAY KIDS are alone as they think of a love from the past until they meet by a bonfire under the falling snow.

The emotional lyrics gives cold feels of unrequited love proving once Han as the lyrical genius. The music video gives the message about letting go of the past and moving on. “The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting longer/On my cold and sore heart, something icy has melted/After repeating to freeze and melt/My heart has lost its warmth from mere regrets.”

The visuals are dark and cold. The members can be seen inside a telephone booth with each taking turns on the phone in consecutive cuts. The captivate rhythm and beats with addictive lyrics makes the track breathtaking “Winter Falls, the snow falls/Purer than anything/Falls, I’ll try to erase everything about you/That still remains with me.”

‘Winter Falls’ has sentimental lyrics with a warm melody and delicate sensibility. The Lee Know/Seungmin and then I.N/Han harmonies are quite delightful for the ears. Han and Hyunjin's facial expressions at the end has their own way of capturing the emotions and making it relatable to show exactly what that feeling felt like, what that stage of the emotional process felt like. Bang Chan and seungmin in the chorus lingers in your ears along with lee know's vocals with seungmin towards the end is just cherry on top.

On the other hand, ‘Christmas EveL’ showed the group’s playful energy and the track makes sure to add the special flair to Christmas in a witty and unique way. In the mv, the eight-member group take up temporary roles as substitute Santa’s after Father Christmas falls ill and ends up in the hospital. The group then prepares gifts for kids all around the world, and delivers them using a magical, transforming truck. “Jingle, jingle, jingle all the way / You got me spinning / Turning round and round and round / Christmas on the ice / Risky and chaostic / I don’t need no presents, crossing out Xmas” - they sing on the chorus. Meanwhile, the boy band also sample the holiday classic ‘Feliz Navidad’ on the bridge.

‘Christmas EveL’ is Stray Kids’ latest single album with 4 tracks namely ‘Christmas EveL’ (title song 1), a new B-side song 24 to 25, ‘Winter Falls’ (title song 2), and ‘DOMINO’ (English Ver.). 3RACHA, a sub-unit of the group comprising Bang Chan, Han and Changbin, are notably credited on all four tracks on the record as both writers and producers.

The special album comes as a surprise to fans that come soon after their second studio album NOEASY featuring lead single Thunderous released on August 23. That record marked the group’s first comeback since being crowned the winners of the Mnet reality TV competition Kingdom: Legendary War.
